Health & Wellness

Hi diabuddies,

I’m excited to share that I tried something that was on my bucket list for so long- surfing!

For teens living with diabetes, heading off to college can also mean heading into the kitchen for the first time.

If you opened any social media channel or news website right now, you could easily find a few dozen rules about what you should and shouldn’t eat to improve your health, lose weight, and feel great.

These days, it can feel like there’s barely enough time to even take a breath. Life is already jam-packed with family, work, email, errands, battling your insurance company, folding laundry, and streaming the latest mini-series.

I remember waiting in the school office. I sat there with my underwear secretly stuffed with toilet paper to hide the evidence. My dad was on his way.

It was towards the end of my grade 8 year.

As far as I knew, I was the last girl in our grade to get my period.

For teens who live with diabetes, graduating from high school and moving into adult life brings a lot of new responsibilities.

Sex is anything but simple. 

Especially when you have type 1 diabetes.
